How do you Rate the Ibanez RG7 Series?

What say ye?
Trend setting mavericks of the seven string world, bang for the buck, or over rated junk?

They're good for the money, but the Ibanez active pickups they use are horrible.

I have one. It's rather good for the price, but +1 to needing better pickups. The pain in the ass is that these use 2xAA batteries rather than a 9v, so you can't use the existing battery compartment for EMGs or whatever. It's a bit heavy, but not exceedingly so. The tone switch is a bit useless because the pickups are really muddy without the EQ engaged. If it went missing, I'd consider another one.
My pedalboard is worth more than my car, but that doesn't say much for either.

I'm not a fan of 7 strings.
But out of all of the 7 strings of different brands, the Ibanez seem to be really good quality for the price.
